I have an envolope filter, they're really good. Errrm it's hard to describe, it's like a REALLY good bass wah, sort of sounds like something being drowned. Try to find a soundclip online.

Is an envelope filter what flea uses for the song 21st century?
#6
No I don't think so, but if that is the effect he's using it's on REALLY low. Flea does use an Envelope filter, though.

George Clinton is famous for his envelope filter funk sound with the Qtron. Flea used a Qtron on the new chillis album.

...it's a qtron envelope filter without a doubt. And it's not on that low, he's just turniung the sweep off.


But I'm guessing you don't own an envelope; I'm not ****ting on you, I'm just establishing that there's more than just the "sweep" sound of an envelope filter.

I do own an envolope filter, doesn't sound like anything I've heard.

You're more condescending than I'd realised. A person with your status on this forum is not someone who should be so obviously crontradicting other forum users and justifying an arrogant attitude...

i have owned the DOD, mini, and regular qtron envelope filters, and ive never had to deal with this sweep you speak of dan. besides, ive read that the bass balls is a piece, and not worth getting compared to the q.

Crazypeanutman, by "sweep," do you mean a certain knob that is on the pedal? I don't think that's exactly what Dan was referring to. To me, sweep doesn't refer so much to a knob as to the "buaaahh" sound you hear when you hold a note long with an envelope filter. On my Boss AW-3, there's a "Decay" control that affects the length of the "sweep."

21st Century sounds a helluva lot like an envelope filter to me, with a very short sweep.

Whatever he actually used in that song, the sound is that of an envelope filter. There are envelope filter pedals, but the effect itself can be built into any circuit.
Computer programmers are loopy.

How is the mini Q-tron? Is it really as much of a value as it seems?

i made that mistake, its not a bass pedal, and you will be utterly disappointed. its great for guitar though.

and i wasnt sure what dan meant by sweep, so im not really sure. i guess that makes sense though junkstuff.

I was just saying because I knew it was one. It wasn't a matter of opinion where I stated IM RIGHT YOUR WRONG BITCHES, it was a matter of fact where you didn't think it was that, but I knew it was that. That's simple. No meanness intended.

Sweep is sorta like what you would get if you opened and closed a wah, kinda like tremolo is what you would get if you raised and lowered your volume. I love sweep, there's a great "sweep delay" on my Line 6 Echo Park that gives a great phychodelic flavor.
